tv. also, we know more about the terrorist threat that shut down u.s. embassies. and peyton manning and eli rapping. it might not be blank in a box but it's pretty funny. like we do at "way too early," we're going to show you the beth athlete ads of all sim. >> we also have that conversation between atlanta braves and waffle house. we'll tell you why later. and perhaps the best of all the rap mashups yet. we'll have that. we begin with president obama sitting down with jay leno. despite some joking, the president addressing a number of issues from the economy and health care to foreign policy
2:31 am
and even touched on the nsa's controversial intelligence gathering. >> a lot of these programs were put in place before i came in. i had some skepticism. i think there's -- we should have a healthy skepticism about what government is doing. we don't have a domestic spying program. what we do have are some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an e-mail address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat. none of the revelations shows the government abused these powers. now, you know, part of it is he's not accustomed to -- >> president obama also addressed washington's relationship with moscow saying he believes the two countries with work together even though russia slips into what he calls a cold war mentality. meanwhile, deadline reports the president attended a private dinner with some supporters in hollywood after "the tonight show" appearance.

the he vept was not on the white house schedule. sources now tell nbc news that the head of al qaeda ordered the group's terror leader in yemen to carry out an attack that would change the balance of power in the middle east. and for the u.s., the warning has turned into action. yesterday a drone strike killed at least four people in yemen, all believed to be al qaeda members. it was the fourth american strike in the last two weeks. the u.s. has airlifted some diplomatic personnel out of the yemeni embassy. sources tell nbc news the decision to withdraw has only encouraged al qaeda and given them a sense that their goals have been achieved by spreading fear. >> now with embassies closed for days, jay leno put the question to the president, how serious is the threat? >> it's significant enough that we're taking every precaution. we had already done a lot to bolster embassy security around the world. it's a reminder that for all the
2:33 am
progress we've made, getting bin laden, putting al qaeda between afghanistan and pakistan back on its heels that, you know, this radical violent extremism is still out there. >> the unanswered questions throughout all this is what kind of threat does al qaeda still pose? earlier in the week jay carney said the core was greatly diminished but some lawmakers say the terror network should not be discounted. >> we now know that al qaeda is it not as splintered as we thought in the past. they can take orders from leadership and they're awfully smart people. the economy is in terrible shape in yemen much it's a fertile breeding ground for al qaeda and muslim extremism. >> staying on the topic of international terrorism, several people have been charged in the
2:34 am
attack on the embassy in libya. a prominent libyan militia leader has been arrested. at least a dozen other names of people they believe participated in the raids that left four americans dead. charges have been filed against some of them. those details are not public. bringing them to justice, though, could prove pretty difficult as much of lib why is controlled by militia and not the actual government of that country. the court-martial for a major nadal hasan is underway. the defendant is responsible for the killing of 13 u.s. soldiers. hasan who is acting as his own attorney in the case delivered a brief opening statement declaring the evidence will clearly show that i am the shooter. the prosecution said the defendant did not want to deploy for duty and believed he was on a jihad to kill his fellow soldiers. the former oormy psychiatrist is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder for
2:35 am
the 2009 ft. hood army base shooting. if found guilty, he could face the death penalty. president george w. bush recovering from heart surgery this morning. he had a stent put in after doctors found a blocked artery during a physical on monday. as you can see there, and as you may well known, he was determined the fittest of any president in office earning a superior health rating with low blood pressure and low cholesterol. he often went jogging, biking, lift weights. he has no previous heart trouble and is expected to resume his lifestyle and return home later today. we have new details on the july 22nd southwest airlines landing that injured nine passengers. in an e-mail released yesterday, the national transportation safety board says it has not found any evidence of mechanical failure on the plane. now the ntsb investigation is focusing on a command switch during the final approach. just moments before the plane's
2:36 am
nose slammed into the runway, the captain reportedly took controls from the first officer, like within 500 feet of landing. in reason was given for the switch. we're told also it's the first time the two had flown together. in arizona, before he hit the late night circuit in l.a., president obama rolled out a new set of economic policies geared toward overhauling the housing industry. the pred said private capital should take on a larger role in the mortgage market. he also endorsed a bipartisan plan to reform fannie mae and freddie mac while accusing house republicans of obstructing immigration reform which he says will help the housing market. >> something that you don't always hear about when it comes to the housing market, and that is fixing our broken immigration system. it would help our housing market. when more people buy homes and play by the rules, home values go up for everybody. with the help of your senators, john mccain and jeff flake, the senate has already passed a
2:37 am
bipartisan immigration bill. i want you to encourage republicans in the house of representatives to stop dragging their feet. let's go ahead and get this done. >> the president's arrival in arizona led to yet another encount we are a republican governor jan brewer on the tarmac at phoenix international airport. just a little bit different than the last time when she wagged her finger at the president. this time smiles and some light conversation. now to business where stocks are pulling back on news that the federal reserve could pull back the stimulus as soon as september. the markets logged the worst day since june. the s&p 500 closing below that 1700 mark. karen cho live in london. good morning. >> good morning, brian. yes, investors are still jumping. we had charles evans and dennis lockheart speaking about tapering and suggesting that the time frame could start from september. but if not september, later this
2:38 am
year. is there anything ground breaking? there really isn't for markets. we saw that selloff in wall street. so it suggests investors are still very much waiting to get that exact news on the timing of tapering. elsewhere, bank of america is again in the headlines. they're facing a freshl civil suit, this time by the sec and justice department around some prime loans. now this does not relate to countrywide which it inherited. instead, this relates directly to the bank. regulators accused bank of america of lying around so-called prime mortgages. they suggest that 15% of jumbo mortgages were actually not high quality loans. they were taken up by wealthy people for those that took out the loans didn't have the documentation to support their income, brian. >> karen, also -- so the "washington post" gets sold to jeff bezos. how did the stock perform on the news? >> it seems as investors are
2:39 am
loving the news. "the washington post" staff may not know what the changes are going to be that he brings into the newspaper. the stock market responded by pushing the shares up 4.3%. this was a five-year high. so it seems as though investors are onboard here. i don't think there is any huge success at amazon. he was the seattle. he keeps his day job. investors are just waiting to see what the newspaper is going to look like. it is somewhat of an archaic business. can bezos do anything to change that or is this a sentimental purchase which typically he doesn't make. >> we appreciate that, karen. you know, personally, i actually think peyton manning is one of the best pitch men on tv. eli, the jury is still out. well, to get ready for football we have them both together. ♪ football on your phone now is your chance ♪ ♪ to have football on your fan and football had your pants ♪
